Sacramento River is fishing well using summer Caddis and blue Wing Olive mayflies and pale morning dun mayflies. In the evenings we are throwing Caddis dry flies very fun to catch him on the surface. The lower Sacramento River is unarguably the best trout fishing in California. Come fish with me and see why.

Trinity River fishing report. Salmon are making their way up the system with the bulk of the Run still coming. I was fishing by the mouth and some of the locals down there was saying was some of the best fishing last week that they’ve seen in years. The Trinity River is a wonderful place to enjoy solitude and hook up on one of these Kings. Look forward to seeing you on the water.

Mad River Fly Fishing Report

Caught this fish (pictured right) on the Mad River. Seeing about 30 steelhead hooked this month, averaging about 3 hook ups a day eel system. This river you have to decide to fish upon week or less notice. It doesn’t need to rain much to Dirty. These fish are up to twenty pounds. Average fish is 8 to 10 pounds. With fish 20 pounds +. This river runs along the avenue of the giants a famous scenic highway. I wonder if they named for the steelhead or the giant redwood trees it goes through. Just a odd coincidence I guess. Fishing into March is good on this river.

Trinity River Fly Fishing Report

Trinity River still fishing fair. The system should last into March. Average steelhead 4 to 6 pounds with a occasional 10  + Pounder.  This river will stay in shape while others blow out. Weather pattern is turning to a wetter pattern that should keep fishing coming up the Trinity.

Sacramento River Fly Fishing Report

Sacramento River is fishing awesome. We are catching these fish under indicators. Black Caddis , pmd patterns, stone patterns, egg patterns: drys are great 2. Having up to 5 hours of drys caddies and pmd patterns. Spey swinging is also working well with small leech patterns . This river will also not dirty as easy in storms due to dam control.
